There is no charge for admission and non members are welcome to come along for a “trial run” to see if they would like to join U3A. Tea and biscuits are available from 1.15pm  for a small fee.

The last monthly meeting was the AGM held at the Bowling Club on Thursday May 30th with reports from each of the Group Leaders which can be seen here.

AGM audience

The next monthly meeting  will be on Thursday June 27th ( 1.15pm for 2.00pm) the speaker will be Stephen Cox presenting on ‘The busy life of bees’.

We have seen some amazing magic from Tyweli Griffiths, heard about Carmarthen Town’s proposed development and the pedestrianisation of King’s Street,  together with upgrading the Jackson’s Lane area, the Wales Air Ambulance, the challenge of being a chaplain in Iraq, learnt about the flora and animal life in the West of Ireland’s “The Burren” , the Suffrage movement in Carmarthen and been told about the work of the Dog’s Trust.

The Speaker’s Secretary is Judy Taylor and can be contacted here contact@carmarthenu3a.org.uk.

Sunday Lunch

This month the Sunday Lunch will take place on 16th June at the Farmers Arms, Llanybri (12.30 pm). The arrangements are being made by Celia Price. She can be contacted for further information via contact@carmarthenu3a.org.uk

Spring Coffee Morning

The Spring Coffee Morning took place as planned on Thursday 11th April 2019 from 10.30 am in the Bowling Club. Standard admission fee was £2.00. There was a raffle and a quiz with loads of prizes for the winners. It seemed as if everyone was a winner! The drinks and cakes were free and the choice was mouth-watering.

Cakes to die for!

It was a lovely social occasion. A big thank you to Marie Geary and others for organising things

We look forward to seeing as many members as possible on these occasions –  do bring along any friends who would like to know more about U3A and perhaps joining us. Volunteers are always welcome for tea-making duties. We would be delighted to have your help! Contact Marie Geary.

Lots of nice home-made cakes

Christmas Dinner

The 2018 Christmas dinner was held at the Falcon Hotel, Lammas Street, Carmarthen. A big thank you to Marie Geary for booking the hotel and making all the arrangements.

On the day a good time was had by all. David and Gwyneth Grindod provided some unexpected seasonal entertainment!
